Fantastic Outdoor Mural, Including "Never Forget" in Williamsport, PA

These are the last photo's from my vacation last month in Williamsport, PA. My nephew, artist Jesse Herrera told me about a large outdoor mural in a downtown parking lot, just off Market Street. It's threee stories tall and depicts 150 people living and dead, local and nationally known.

My sister Melanee Herrera and I took some photo's of the giant mural, but these don't do it justice. If you're ever in Williamsport, PA, stop by and have a look.

It was created by Michael Pilato. You can read about it on his web site He paints on large boards and then nails them to the walls. He's done a similar mural in State Collage, PA, home of Penn State.


  1. That must be wonderful to see in person. I love murals. So much to look at and enjoy. :)Bea

  2. Thanks for sharing these wonderful murals. They must be breathtaking in person.

    I sent you an email with info on classes at my friend's, Maureen, studio/gallery in South Park on Beech Street. When I received Maureen's email about these classes, I thought of you. So, take what you like & leave the rest. :oD


  3. Michael Pilato, I was painting some Spring windows on Thursday & the manager or one of the places where I was working mentioned his daughter was a contributing artist on the mural in Williamsport, PA. that you painted.
    So I had to try to find it on the web.
    How many artists were involved?

  4. I am not Michael Pilato. I visited my family in Williamsport this summer and took pics of his mural there. Check my post for a link or google his name to learn more contacting him. Thanks for your comment. -Nina
